    Tele2 turns to Nokia to distribute independent 5G Core and Voice over 5G

    Nokia said on Monday that it was selected by European telecom operator Tele2 to implement Standalone (SA) 5G Core and Voice over 5G (Vo5G) and improve its cloud infrastructure.

    Nokia’s 5G core offers near zero-touch automation capabilities that foster greater scalability and reliability, allowing Tele2 to cost-effectively lay the foundation for 5G and enable faster time to market with new services. The open architecture also offers the flexibility to respond to market demands while controlling costs in a time of increasing network complexity.

    The new core infrastructure will support and improve 4G and 5G connectivity, resulting in faster speeds and lower latencies for consumers and businesses in Sweden, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. Nokia will also roll out its Cloud Packet Core products to support 4G and 5G core network functions and improve network scalability, performance and reliability.

    The partnership will see the implementation of new Subscriber Data Management software to streamline Tele2 network operations and the provision of Voice over 5G (Vo5G) services to support connectivity and reduce operating expenses for both 5G and 4G.

    In addition, Nokia will implement cloud and network management products from its CloudBand, Network Services Platform (NSP) and NetAct product portfolios to further secure, automate and scale network management operations. Nokia’s NetGuard Security products will also be rolled out to help Tele2 further improve the security of this digitized network infrastructure.

    Commenting on the partnership, Thomas Helbo, CTO, Tele2, said: “We have been looking for a competent partner to reliably and efficiently manage the launch of our 5G core, and we found just that in Nokia. With Nokia managing integration and their ability to leverage years of experience, our team is able to focus on enabling new services for our customers, while running a smart and reliable network. “

    The implementation of Tele2’s new 5G core is expected to begin in 2021.
